Saving Configurations (IIS 6.0)
After you have your site and application up and running the way you want, you can save all or part of the configurations for a backup copy, or for import and export to other sites or computers.
IIS automatically makes a backup copy of the metabase configuration and schema files each time the metabase changes. Administrators can also create backup files on demand, or create backup copies of individual site or application configurations and then export and import them to and from other sites or computers.
Backup files contain only configuration data; they do not include your content (.asp files, .htm files, .dll files, etc.).
You must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer to perform the following procedure or procedures. As a security best practice, log on to your computer by using an account that is not in the Administrators group, and then use the runas command to run IIS Manager as an administrator. At a command prompt, type runas /user:Administrative_AccountName "mmc %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\iis.msc".
